3-year-old dies after shooting himself inside Paulding County home

“A 3-year-old boy shot and killed himself Tuesday morning with a gun belonging to his parents, Paulding County authorities said.

“Holston’s death was the latest shooting in metro Atlanta in which small children have found loaded guns at home and killed themselves. It was the second time in slightly more than six months a child in Paulding was unintentionally shot to death.

“Across the U.S., at least 69 children were accidentally injured or killed by gunfire in 2015, according to Everytown for Gun Safety, a gun-control advocacy group.”
